The Reality Ventura Internship is an opportunity for you to grow in your ministry, calling, and intimacy with Jesus. While many organizations view internships as a pathway for employment, we see our internship as a way of training and equipping members of the church for everyday life.

    Know Your Beliefs.

    The Internship will help you to know both what you believe and why, as well as promote maturity in Christ and godly character by providing biblical training and cohort-based discipleship.

    Use Your Gifts.

    The Internship will help you discern and develop your gifts to use them for God’s glory within the local church.

    Engage on Mission.

    The Internship will empower you with the gospel’s DNA and the philosophy of our church’s approach to ministry so you can be effective members in Reality Ventura and servants to Ventura County

    The Internship will accomplish these purposes through theological education, spiritual formation, and practical service to the church. This will take place over nine months (September to June) and consist of a weekly 90 minute class on Sundays, some light homework, and 2-4 hours (or more if desired) service in a specific ministry area, which we hope will suit your gifts and meet the church’s needs. While our Internship program is not designed to lead to paid positions within the church, we do hope that each Intern will be better equipped to serve God’s purposes for life.
